UFV students create Sto:lo territorial acknowledgement video

The SOWK 380 course, typically taught by Professor Robert Harding, is a class that has a history of harnessing the creative and inventive juices of UFV students in the pursuit of social justice.

This video acknowledging that UFV is in Sto:lo territory is just one example of their superior work and the video is open to anyone who wishes to use it.
